Rapture

Millions of readers across the globe were waiting for this one. THIS is the story of whether or not Luce and Daniel would finally overcome and be able to live a full life together. Over the years they have fought to accomplish this goal. Daniel has been the fallen angel who chose Luce as the girl he wanted a long time ago; Luce is the teenage girl down below who was fighting and struggling to live her life (or, at least, find a way to like her life) when they first met up at Sword & Cross. And, yes, this was the school that made all readers a little creeped out and definitely wanted to do better in school so they wouldn’t be put there.

 

Over the years (and books) Luce began to have incidents and, most of all, memories. She saw her past lives in China, Egypt, and other locations where she and Daniel met, kissed and death took over. This was a curse and something they had to overcome in order to be together.

 

Suffice to say the final book was the picture of a paranormal battle of wills. This was the war of Heaven versus Hell that had to be played out in order for Luce to finally unveil and uncover exactly what she is and find out exactly why she and Daniel have had this horrific heartbreaking history. The cast of characters are back – the angels (bad and good) must get together to hunt the land for three objects; three objects that when brought together will show a solution to stop Lucifer from altering time and starting the world all over again – erasing the lives and future that Luce and Daniel had shared, making sure they will no longer find each other the next time around.

 

This is the pain, the agony and an adventure where the group must actually meet up with creatures they haven’t exactly liked along the way in order to fight for what they want. What’s the main issue? Luce has a secret buried in her own mind and when she finds this secret out she will have to fight for her very life, existence, and – of course – the ability to be with the boy she loves.

 

This is one of those ‘vacant’ reviews because…it has to be. Literally every page of this adventure introduces a new character, a new piece of the past, and a new secret that readers will want to learn for themselves as they sit in a room alone and come to terms with what Lauren Kate has been saying across this series. There are those readers who will not be surprised (frankly, I think many knew where this was all going). But the biggest issue with this series is the fact that it has come to an end. Likened to the ‘fanged’ character that everyone loved for so long as he fought for his lady and vice versa – Lauren Kate’s couple will be caught in the imagination for a good, long time until – perhaps – the movie screen allows readers to see Luce and Daniel up close and personal.

 

The writing is as good as Book I and does not leave readers unhappy. ‘Nough said. Advice to Lauren Kate? Get going on another YA series because you’re certainly a master at it!

 

A fond farewell to Luce and Daniel!

 

Until Next Time, Everybody,

Amy

  The Levelling DVD Review by Kam Williams Bittersweet Prodigal Daughter Parable Arrives on DVD It's not very clear whether Harry Catto's (Joe Blakemore) death was a murder or a suicide.

The cops suspect that he killed himself, but his father (David Troughton) is too much in shock to press them to … [Read More its Good for You.....]
